The State of the Union Speech…for real!

SOTU

First of all, let me be clear, I did not look at the State of the Union speech last night, but here is my take on it.

“My fellow Americans, let me be clear. I love you all and I love America! We are at a turning point in America’s history. I have created so many unemployed people, that I have been contacted by the Guinness Book of World Records for this submission. I have closed so many retail stores, I believe I have broken another record. I have drone struck so many innocent people in foreign lands that our drone program is in no danger of ending. I have deposed so many other evil dictators, the world is a much safer place, especially in Libya and Iraq. That mess I got started over in Ukraine, uh, I mean…that Putin got started over in Ukraine is going just as planned. Venezuela is feeling our wrath and will continue to do so until they realize just who is in charge of their country. I have opened relations with Cuba for our, uh, their benefit. Oil production is at an all-time high and our shale industry is doing great. In fact, I just received a thank you letter from some folks in Texas who haven’t yet received their lay-off notices. Real bad Black folks who were caught with a dime bag of weed on them will be incarcerated for 30 years and so white folks, go ahead and take that deep sigh of relief. The prison industrial complex is in full swing and mostly privatized as that is what free market enterprise is all about. The government should not corner the market. There are enough prisoners to fill all institutions. There is no need for more schools since our poor are in prison. There is no need to pass legislation to rein in Wall Street as they are great at overseeing what they do. Those folks are the best.

We have several distinguished guests with us tonight. First up, we have Jack Black who wrote a letter to Santa begging him to let him get an education and grow up to be a successful entrepreneur. His greatest hope is that he does not find himself on the business end of an AK-47 held by New York’s finest in blue. And I am here to help him with his dreams of entrepreneurship because my Administration has approved $20.00 in funding for new business enterprises for Black inner city youth and this young man should have the ability to open as many shoeshine stands on the streets of New York City as is possible for him to realize his dream.

As you all are aware, we just celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and I must say, Dr. King visited me in my dreams last night and thanked me for the wonderful job that I am doing in increasing unemployment in Black communities all across America. Dr. King praised me for increasing child poverty to unprecedented levels because even Dr. King understood the premise of pulling yourselves up by your very own bootstraps. He could never tolerate slackers. Look how much marching he did. That was quite a stretch, marching from Selma to Montgomery. Dr. King realized that the rich prop the economy up and that serfs and peasants are needed and therefore, we have created a nice little niche for said serfs and peasants to slave away all day long; cleaning the toilets of the rich, handing them their lattes across the counters of Starbucks, ringing up their purchases at Nordstrom’s and of course, bowing and scraping to them as they dust and vacuum their homes.

At the start of my first term, I did what I had to do and that is why not one Wall Street thug that caused the economic collapse went to jail because those thugs are necessary to uphold the very foundation of the economic status of millions of Americans. How else could Americans lose their homes? These self-sacrificing thugs are up all night swilling champagne and trying to formulate plans to make more Americans homeless because that builds character and if I may go back to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for a minute. Dr. King said, “Do not judge me by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character.” So, as you can see, my inspiration tonight comes from Dr. K. Wassup man? Dr. King was all for building on character. Don’t worry about your skin color. I am half Black and half white and I stand before you as president of the greatest militarized country on the planet. If we maintain our military, then we don’t need to fund food stamp programs. Seniors can take cuts in their Social Security benefits and the Disabled can join our military in the bullet making department. We even have openings at various drone sites all across the country. Even a senior citizen can put some bi-focal glasses on, cite innocent foreign targets and with the touch of a button, send them to hell. These are mean times we live in folks. We’ve created so many terrorists that we just may have to reinstitute the draft. By doing so, we will put more people to work because we have jobs available in the military for the blind, crippled and the crazy. Hell! That’s what we turn our service men and women into anyway and we need some fresh blood ‘cause the troops ain’t looking so great.

We have another distinguished guest with us tonight. This lady from Little Rock, Arkansas wrote to me about her need for housing. Joan Bloomers, where are you? Oh, there you are. Please, let her out of the cage so that she can acknowledge my acknowledgement of her. I thought I told you Joe to prepare a bath for Ms. Bloomers. The homeless shelter she is staying at has bedbugs and lice and no hot showers. Thank you for your letter Ms. Bloomers, now back inside your cage, if you will! Now, I know what some of you are thinking. John Rabid Dog McCain has twelve houses and I bet that he would not even miss one and could therefore, give one of his homes to Ms. Bloomers here. You know what? I wouldn’t even think of asking John Rabid Dog McCain to give up not even one of his homes because well, why should he? Ms. Bloomers needs the assistance of her community and since I was a community organizer, I am well aware that the community should have come together to provide some assistance for Ms. Bloomers’ housing needs. HUD is underfunded due to the needs of our military and unfortunately for Ms. Bloomers, I cannot offer her a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher at this time. Be patient, Ms. Bloomers and patience is its own reward. Have faith in your Lord and Savior Ms. Bloomers and know that he shall deliver you out of the cold of winter and into the warmth of the Pearly Gates.

And in closing, let me say, fellow Americans, I take much pride in informing you that I intend to start a new two year community college program for all 2nd graders. This program will be funded through tax increases on the class that used to be the middle class but has now descended into the underprivileged class, but not to worry folks. After the 2nd graders take the TAS standardized entrance tests for the two year community college program, that will weed out the wheat from the chaff and only the brightest minds will be qualified. They will be the exceptional ones and as you all know, we here in America, pride ourselves on our exceptionalism. So remember, my fellow Americans, I have decreased high paying jobs, I have increased the need for food stamps. I have increased child poverty by leaps and bounds. I have committed more war crimes than I can shake a stick at and all that I have done is because of my love for America. We shall continue to reign as the most impoverished but the most militarized, warring nation on the face of this planet. Our motto is, “We came, we saw, we conquered, we blew it up and we went back and we blew it up again!” Now take that ISIS AND Vladimir Putin!

God bless America! And thanks to me, may God help the American people! Thank you!”

The Red Cross Is Spreading Ebola!

ebola-liberia

The lies just never stop coming.
And the tales just get so tall.
Here comes one more down the pike,
and for another lie, we fall.

Whatever happened to the truth
was it banished from the earth?
Did we lock it up and toss the key,
and give truth the widest berth?

The Red Cross is spreading Ebola,
to the Blacks who have the oil.
America’s going to bomb them,
unless this plot of theirs, we foil.

It seems that diamonds aren’t being mined.
Those who worked the mines just quit.
The West must have those riches,
and the Red Cross will do its bit.

Oh beware of their vaccines,
you don’t know what’s in that mess.
What is true is not so true,
and the liars won’t confess.

Life don’t mean a thing.
Its value falls each passing day.
And when we think that all is lost,
that’s because it is in every way.

Ebola ‘Caused by Red Cross’

While health workers are struggling to contain the outbreak, conspiracy theories about the deadly pandemic are proliferating on the internet, with people deeming the virus a creation of the West to annihilate Africans or as the result of bioterrorism activities.

The latest of these theories involves a Ghanaian man who claims the virus does not exist and that people are dying after they receive vaccinations by the Red Cross.

News website the Event Chronicle republished the post allegedly written by Nana Kwame, from Ghana’s capital Accra, who claimed that the deadly virus is just an invention and “people in the Western World need to know what’s happening here in West Africa.

“Ebola it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross, the post said, adding that the virus “was invented” to allow western troops on African soil.

“…to allow western troops on African soil. Doesn’t sound so farfetched to me!

Conspiracy or truth? You be the judge.

US will send 3,000 troops to help fight Ebola in West Africa

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa’s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 US military personnel to the afflicted region.

“This humanitarian intervention….” Uh oh! That NEVER ends well when the U.S. military is involved. Humanitarian intervention from the U.S.? Get real! Why? Keep reading!

How the CIA’s Fake Vaccination Campaign Endangers Us All

The U.S. was wrong to use health workers to target Osama bin Laden

In its zeal to identify bin Laden or his family, the CIA used a sham hepatitis B vaccination project to collect DNA in the neighborhood where he was hiding. The effort apparently failed, but the violation of trust threatens to set back global public health efforts by decades.

It is hard enough to distribute, for example, polio vaccines to children in desperately poor, politically unstable regions that are rife with 10-year-old rumors that the medicine is a Western plot to sterilize girls—false assertions that have long since been repudiated by the Nigerian religious leaders who first promoted them. Now along come numerous credible reports of a vaccination campaign that is part of a CIA plot—one the U.S. has not denied.

…and people want to call everything a ‘conspiracy’. Are you getting a clue as to why? If not, read up on the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment and then keep reading and you will find the Guatemalan STD Study. So, when you have the U.S. intentionally using bioterrorism such as what occurred in Pakistan without any consideration at all for what could happen, why would it not be plausible for an organization that is as rife with corruption as the Red Cross is to be in co-hoots with the Obama Administration’s agenda in Africa?

For those of you who think the Red Cross is on the up and up, keep reading.

Mar 12, 2010 – Senators question $1 million pay for charity’s CEO – wtop.com … Red Cross only gives $.07 on every dollar to the people in need.

And to think that many of us have a problem dropping a dime into a cup held in the hand of a homeless person because we fear that he or she will only get drunk. Why is it that we do not hold executives of the so-called ‘charitable organizations’ to the same standards? You have no problem dropping $50.00 or more into the coffers of the Red Cross when according to reports only .07 out of each dollar will actually go to those in need. So, are you still wondering why there are so many in need? If you are, ask the CEO of a ‘charity’ the Red Cross, ‘why’?

What Makes ‘U.S.’ So Damn Exceptional?

imagesDHE5U8FI

As bombs paid for by me, turn your home into useless rubble,
you wonder why I condone my government’s war with you.
How can you comprehend my willingness to scream, “More war!”
It is because I have been programmed by certain images to hate the things you do.

“thoughts of the brainwashed Americans*
———————————————————————————————————-

When your western media plasters your entertainment devices with beheadings, you are shocked!
And yet what you refuse to find shocking is that your government’s actions caused those beheadings.

Why should I love you when you’ve destroyed my country over a lie?
What would you do if the same were to happen to your beloved homeland?

When will you realize that I am just as human as you are and my children too deserve to live?
Why can you not understand that when you bomb me, I am going to hate you?
Can you really not conceive of the idea that what you’ve done to me is not going to make me love you?

How foolish of you to sleep in your snug beds, driving around on oil from my country and scream when I retaliate for the victims of your white phosphorus in Fallujah,
when I retaliate for the women who have lost children thanks to your bombs,
when I retaliate for orphans who wander around crying because their family is dead.

What makes you so damn exceptional and so damn more important than we are?
Why do you feel this way? Is it because there is no one bombing your country?

You speak of your 911 as though that gives you the right to kill millions of my people.
Why are your 3,000 American bodies more important than any other bodies on this planet?

We do not find you to be exceptional and we will not kneel at the feet of your war machine.
And you know what America, fuck you and your exceptionalism and your arrogance.

Fuck you in your cells that you call homes and even now you think that you are free.
You are not free as you have only the illusion of freedom and one day even that will end.

I do not have to bring ‘terrorism’ to your country America just because you bring it to mine.
For one day, the seeds that you have planted in my country will grow and they are growing,
and your bombs and your drones will not stop us because when you kill me, there will be others.

And for every one of us that you kill, a thousand more is ready to take up the cause,
the cause of wiping your vileness off the face of this planet and we will America!

Count on it and see what you will reap for all the children that you have killed in foreign lands to get their oil,
and for all the mothers and fathers that you have buried with your lust for what is ours,
we will pay you back and we will be victorious because we are what you wish to destroy.
And though you try, you will never be able to defeat us because we are not afraid to die!

*thoughts of a ‘militant’ fighting back against invaders of his country*

——————————————————————————————————

I would like to take this opportunity to say that once again the U.S. and Great Britain lead the charge into Iraq and even though as of yet Great Britain has abstained from bombing Syria, those in Great Britain should be choking over the fact that they and the Americans are the reasons why ‘groups’ are hell bent on ‘terrorizing’ their way across Iraq and Syria and Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East. The destabilization of that region lies squarely with the ‘coalition of the stupid and the oil gluttons’ and the reason why, according to so many polls that point to Americans not having a problem with the continuation of genocide against the people of the Middle East is because of our dependence on foreign oil and because those who are sent into harms way to keep that oil flowing to the U.S. are not the sons and daughters of the rich nor are they the sons and daughters of the upper middle class. The cannon fodder is expendable because of who makes up the cannon fodder; the bodies that return in bags and the wreckage of once whole people who actually make it back end up on the streets, homeless or incarcerated, are the poor.

Everything ISIS aka IS aka ISIL aka al-Qaeda aka who the hell knows what group is next to be announced learned, they learned from the warmongers in the U.S. and Great Britain, the coalition of the wars-are-for-profit bastards that make a killing off war and they learned it well.

From the quagmire that was Vietnam, we learned not a damn thing because if we think that by doing the same thing that we did in Vietnam that we are going to get a different result, we are indeed, insane and quite frankly, we are! With every bomb that we drop, with every drone that we launch and it hits a target, we are fostering resentment, hate and a renewed fervor for revenge by those whom we have bombed to strike back and they will. If we kill one, a hundred more will take up where they left off. It will not end, not unless the U.S. and its coalition of the stupid manage to kill every single man, woman and child in the Middle East and even that won’t stop it because people are joining the ranks of the so-called terrorists as I type this from countries all over the world.

When will there be an understanding that the world’s people are not going to be bombed into the West’s way of thinking? And showing pictures of beheadings will gain sympathy as it was intended to do but that will still not make those who are alleged to have beheaded people to stop doing it. And those of us in the U.S. really have no clue as to who is doing what because we believe everything the media whores shove at us without question and just so long as no one is continuously bombing America, all is good. Well, it’s not because there is not a damn thing exceptional about Americans that is not exceptional about the Iraqi people who have been killed all over a lie. There is nothing at all exceptional about soldiers that killed Afghan civilians and pissed on their dead bodies, chopped off their body parts and emailed the pictures. Where is your outrage America over that? Where is your outrage over the torture of innocent Iraqi people in Abu Ghraib prison? Where is your outrage over America’s use of white phosphorus in Fallujah? Have you even cared to find out what white phosphorus does to the body? No, you haven’t because according to Americans, no one other than Americans are exceptional. Well, America, you are indeed exceptional. You are exceptionally obtuse, stupid, arrogant, brainwashed, hypocritical, depraved and vile and so long as you continue to think that no other people on this planet is worthy of living like you do, you WILL reap what you sow!

Marching For Climate Change!

sink wall street

Flood Wall Street

Demonstrators march towards Wall Street from Battery Park to protest for action on climate change and corporate greed, Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, in New York a day after a huge climate march in New York City.
Flood Wall Street
http://news.msn.com/world/thousands-join-in-global-climate-change-marches-1#image=2

Marching for global climate change? That’s NOT going to get it done! How about we stop buying, buying and buying? How about we sink Wall Street instead of flooding it since we flood Wall Street with our consuming ways. How many Apple products would be sold if we simply stop buying them? How many ways could we stave off further damage to this planet if we simply refused to buy yet another Apple iPod touch 3rd generation, 4th generation, 5th generation so that WE as people could continue for generations instead of a goddamn iPod?

When will we cease with the hypocrisy already and get real?! By marching, you’re not doing a goddamn thing to stop global climate change. The only thing you’re doing is some feel good shit that ain’t getting it done! How many of you charged up your iPhone before heading to the global climate change march? Eh? What’s that? I fucking can’t hear you! That’s what I thought. Every goddamn one of you plugged that charger in and then the minute you could, uploaded a video of how many people attended the global climate change march and marched for not a goddamn thing because you’re ALL fucking up and causing climate change. Getting arrested ain’t how you do your part to mitigate the damage that’s been done by us to this planet. Marching through Times Square by the hundreds of thousands did what for global climate change? Not a goddamn thing.

What you need to do, you refuse to do. You can’t stop buying. And those same people that marched by the hundreds of thousands will be camping out in mall parking lots in just a couple of months in anticipation of purchasing some more earth destroying junk. Now, you see what hypocrites you all are? So stop pissing in the wind and get with the program that you’re not at all serious about combatting global climate change when the only thing that you are willing to do about it is march and ‘flood’ Wall Street with more of your dollars that enable those thugs to reward themselves with multi-million dollar bonuses for having amassed a fortune for their shareholders because you’ve got to ‘spend baby, spend’!

Again, here’s a clue! If you ain’t living in the woods and riding horseback, you’re contributing to climate change. If you’re hooked up to the grid and shopping and driving, you’re contributing to climate change. Accept it! Deal with it! And either stop doing that shit or sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because all that marching is useless and just for show! Who the fuck you think you’re fooling? Get real!

Stained With Blood!

samar-hassan-screams-afte-006

Shell shocked and raw lies a country now in ruins,
made so by a lie and so now we self-destruct.
We were never a threat to you, but you bombed us all the same.
You claimed to bring us freedom but instead we got fucked!

Condemned without a trial to disease, death and destruction.
Sanctioned to our knees and brought down by western weapons
as birth defects are rampant from Baghdad to Fallujah,
and the guilty still walk free, never looked upon as felons.

We are maimed and defeated and our oil is stained with blood.
It flows into America like your rivers and your streams.
You drive over innocent bodies that were killed to give you speed.
Every time you pump that gas, may you hear the banshee’s screams!

You live your life and cut ours short and never pay the price.
While you claimed to liberate us, you entangled us in your net.
Your mission was accomplished and now you’re back again.
What more is there to take? There’s nothing left for you to get.

Oh, the empire marches on and it’s not done with us.
For the pain that you have caused, one day you too will pay.
We hear of troubles in your land, but you’ve seen nothing yet.
For every Iraqi child you killed, your prayers don’t hold no sway.

Crude Warriors!

crude warriors

Warriors, once so proud, now kill innocents by remote.
There is no war that ever was a war to end all wars of note.

You’re a hypocrite born and bred and you’re filled with gratitude.
What price will you not pay just to get that precious crude?

I keep the wars away from you as you seek the pearly gates.
And you in turn enrich my coffers; over all, lust dominates.

What was theirs was mine to take with weapons so superior.
Of the people that I kill, they’re irrelevant and inferior.

Judge not the warriors job for he obtains just you what you need.
And ignore the cries of the dying, as you pay their death no heed.

What we have here is outrageous hypocrisy. We have people who sit up in church every Sunday and yeah, get your fancy, smancy shit ready for tomorrow so that you sit up looking all smug and stupid thinking that you’re all the shit when you’re just really all about shit because how the hell are you getting to church? How are you getting back home? You people literally make me sick with your smug ass posts about what’s needed to stop the wars and the warmongers and the war machine and you act as if it’s not all about YOU! Well, it SO fucking is because every single goddamn time that you pull up to the gas pump and fill the tank, someone in a distant land who just so happens to be sitting atop some oil, dies. You fucking know it but you’re so goddamn hypocritical and ‘christian’ that you distance yourself from the knowledge. Well, here is to in YOUR face with YOUR hypocrisy! Stand in the goddamn mirror and look at that evil, distorted caricature of a supposedly inherently decent ‘human’ and most likely you think of yourself as ‘christian’ too. Well, I’ll tell you what you are, you’re a blood thirsty, filthy, depraved, corrupt shit that likes to think that you’re better than the ones you call out. You like to think that you’re better than the corrupts shits that run this shithole called America. You’re so fucking not! You’re right up there with those worthless shits because everything they do is done because you’ve just got to have CRUDE and that CRUDE does not belong to U.S. And goddamn it, we don’t care who gets destroyed just so long as we get to drive to the fucking mall and to the club and to the grocery store and to any goddamn where we want.

America has been fucking up the Middle East for how long now? Years too numerous to count! And why would that be? Eh? You don’t know? Of course you fucking know! It’s because of you, see! You’ve got to fucking drive, baby drive!!! So, shut the fuck up about some, “why are we always trying to start shit in foreign lands?” Shut the fuck up about how tired you are of what’s done in your name. ‘Cause you ain’t tired. You fucking SO ain’t tired! ‘Cause if you was, you’d of done something about it by now. So drive your goddamn ass to church tomorrow, sit and pray with your hypocritical ass covered in some silk and some more shit and pretend like you’re the greatest thing that ever lived simply because you went and typed some shit about how much you bemoan the loss of life due to some shit that’s done ’cause you can’t fucking stop driving! When you come the fuck up in here, you’re gonna get the goddamn truth. And ain’t no goddamn body asking you to like it ’cause the dead in Yemen and Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya and so forth and so on, they don’t fucking like being dead ’cause you need some goddamn CRUDE, SEE!!!

http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/02/28/surprising-facts-about-us-and-oil/

Let’s start with America’s oil consumption, which is 18.8 million barrels per day (MBD), according to the EIA. That usage puts the U.S. atop the list of the world’s largest oil consumers by a wide margin. Indeed, U.S. demand is more than that of the next four nations combined: Japan, Russia and rising economic powers China and India:

God Damned America To Hell!

Religion? In America? Hell nah! Because God damned America to hell!
Religion? In America? Hell nah! Because God damned America to hell!

Oh, so, you went to church today and got ‘religion’, did you? Fuck if you did! Ain’t no goddamn religion in these here Divided Snakes of Amurderer because God damned America to hell! You’re a lying piece of filth if you even think that you’ve got an inkling of what religion is all about. You’re fucking clueless because you think that if you bow your head and listen to some stupid ass prayer from some simple ass reverend that you’re good. You ain’t good! In fact, you so ain’t good! Your happy ass is hell bound, motherfucker! You see, you’re just another piece of worthless filth who is trying to pay their way through the pearly gates. Your reverend is a goddamn piece of shit ‘cause you’re paying him or her for services rendered; the service of assuring your worthless happy ass, a permanent spot in paradise once you blow your last breath out. Haven’t you heard? You can’t ‘buy’ your way into heaven motherfucker, oh no! You either get there on your own merits or you don’t get there at all. You go in the opposite direction. And I’ll save you some dough! You ain’t going to heaven, oh not at all. I don’t care what you do. The reason why you ain’t going to heaven motherfucker, and you know why, but you don’t want to admit to it, is because you’re a sorry, worthless, complacent, apathetic, useless piece of shit that ain’t even worth the dirt underneath your Louis Vuitton shoes and what’s more, you ain’t got a merit to stand on. That ant that you stepped on on your way into your ‘holy’ worshipping palace has a guaranteed spot in God’s holy place, but your ass won’t see it because you’ve already been rejected and don’t even act like you don’t know it.

Nothing can save your worthless ass from the hellfire that your reverend, is going on and on about. Oh that’s right, you’re listening so intently and hanging onto every word because you need that hope that once you’ve paid your tithes and bowed your head and repeated after the good reverend, that that is all you’ve got to do. Hell nah, motherfucker! You see, when was the last time that you gave a shit about anybody or anything other than your own worthless hide? I’ll tellya. On the twelfth of never! You more than likely drove by a homeless mother and child and spit and if you didn’t do that, then you looked the other way. When was the last time you actually gave a damn about the fact that children are hungry and are going to bed in warehouses? When was the last time you cared enough to call a prison warden and ask why are prisoners on hunger strikes? When was the last time you gave a thought to those who are without health insurance especially since you know what it feels like to be sick? When was the last time you told your representative that you were damn sick and tired of wars being started in your name over some bullshit? When have you ever realized that the reason why America is constantly minding some goddamn other country’s business is because you’re driving an SUV next door to the supermarket? Have you ever wondered why America’s military is stationed all around the world? Have you ever checked and found that the U.S. spends more on military useless shit than it does on anything else? Have you never wondered why drones are still raining down on the heads of people in foreign lands if Osama bin Laden is dead? Have you even thought to wonder why America does not want to get out of Afghanistan? Have you wondered why America is knee deep in starting shit in Venezuela? Hell no, you haven’t. You don’t fucking care because you’re just so goddamn religious, that shit just don’t concern you. You’ can’t be bothered because that would mean that you’d have to look up and see that it ain’t all mood lighting and sunbeams shining in your stupid, clueless face. You just might have to actually DO something about all the horrors that you see unfolding before your eyes that you just don’t want to see.

Church and religion is another escape route for you because then you think that by singing some hymns, that you can keep reality at bay. Sing a hymn and shit don’t look grim. Well, it’s grim, motherfucker, exceedingly grim. And what do you think you’re going to do when the bomb falls into your goddamn lap? You gonna sing a hymn? Is that going to stop your foolish ass from being vaporized? Are you gonna pretend that it’s a big ole smartphone and play with it? Probably, since Americans ain’t exactly displaying any God given sense these days. And you want to know why? Again, God damned these divided snakes of Amurderer. So, motherfucker, keep assuming that you even have a clue as to what ‘religion’ is all about when you don’t know a goddamn thing about religion. Keep telling yourself that religion is what’s keeping people from being homeless. If that were the case, then why are there over a million people walking around homeless in America on any given night? Keep telling yourself that religion is what’s keeping people fed. If that were the case, then why are so many children hungry when they get to school in the morning? Keep telling yourself that hospital emergency rooms are there to treat the uninsured sick. Of course you never heard about poor Anna Brown, a poor homeless woman, who died in police custody because she went to the hospital begging for help only to have the police called on her, taken to jail and died promptly on the jailhouse floor from blood clots in her leg. You didn’t hear about that because you were too busy attempting to buy your way into heaven by handing money to the reverend who will make sure that you pay dearly for your guaranteed spot.

You didn’t hear about the children in Iraq who are now orphans thanks to the good ole USofA. You didn’t hear about the civilians in Afghanistan who have been fucked up by the U.S. military, killed and had their body parts cut off and exhibited for trophies. You were busy trying to pay your way into heaven. You didn’t hear about the drones that have been raining down on innocent heads in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia because you’re just too religious to pay attention! You can’t be bothered by that piddling little shit. What’s that got to do with you? It’s got everything to do with you because it’s done in your goddamn name and what’s done in your name is going to register on YOU motherfucker on judgment day. So, if you think that you are religious, you’d better hop to waking the fuck up, opening your motherfucking eyes and saying, “woe motherfuckers, the shit stops now because I’m religious, SEE and I want my candy ass to get into paradise, I’ve paid enough for it!”

Yes indeed, God damned America and don’t even think that I am going to pretty any goddamn thing up anymore. The time for me to post poems about posies of pansies is long fucking gone, so if you think that you’re going to bring your candy ass in here and read some feel good shit, too fucking bad. It SO ain’t gonna happen. If you can’t handle fire, then stay the hell outta this goddamn kitchen, cause it’s smokin’ in here, SEE! You know about fucking religion, my ass!

“Bombs Bursting In Air!”

syrian flag and american bombs2

The air strikes in Syria are soon to commence.
People of Syria, do not take offense.

We are striking to save you; you will thank us one day.
That pipeline you’re building, there’ll be some delay.

Israel is our friend, so please understand.
We’re like lovers on a beach; walking hand in hand.

Those chemical weapons that were used on you,
were made by us and we’ve used them too.

We really don’t care that you’ve suffered so much.
The Israeli’s are rich, their wealth you can’t touch.

We will defend their right to exist.
For your sake, fight the urge to resist.

When we bomb you, Iran is next.
With both destroyed, we’ll feather our nest.

It is written in stone, the dye is cast.
The first bomb will strike; it will not be the last.

“And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,”
“will give proof through the night that ‘your’ flag won’t be there.”

“O say does your star-spangled banner yet wave,”
“O’er the bombing of your land, and the homes you can’t save?”

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I am totally AGAINST the bombing of Syria. I have made that quite clear to those who claim to ‘represent’ me. They do not listen to us. This war that is soon to be fought against Syria will not stop with Syria, it will continue as there will be yet another excuse to war with Iran and who knows what country will be next. All that I can say to the countries in the Middle East that are on our ‘war’ list, you have my deepest and sincere sympathy, for all its worth. There are millions of us who are against this and we would stop it if we could. But we are as powerless as you are to stop it.

We claim to be a ‘Christian’ nation and yet this ‘Christian’ nation was founded on war and has been at war of some sort ever since. We will not stop. We shall not stop. We are war mongers. We are not saviors. We are destroyers. We are the hypocrites that are spoken of by Jesus in the Bible. We are not the ‘Christians’ who followed Jesus. We follow the almighty, that is true, but we follow the almighty dollar. We never send aid unless we will get something in return. We always have an agenda. As I’ve said in my poem, “We Are The Terrorists,” ‘where ever we have gone, the people always lose, there is something that they have, there is something we can use’. Once again, we are NOT humanitarians so please do not ever ask help from the U.S. as you will only die and regret it!

With a heavy heart,

We Do NOT Come In Peace!

no peace

We smile and we grin when we look you in the face.
We are evil and depraved and we left the human race.
If you have what we want, we will not be denied.
When we said, “we come in peace,” quite obviously, we lied.

Give us all your land, we’ll make it worth your while.
We’re slick and oh so smooth, how glibly we beguile.
Underneath this polished exterior, we’re covered deep in slime.
We now demand ‘black gold, pure Middle Eastern prime.

The 5th fleet is on standby, awaiting direct orders.
Assessing every conflict and watching all the borders.
They’re there to do our bidding, should oil production cease.
We own all the rights, there’ll be no Mid East peace.

We are the controllers with no need for alibis.
We took over North America, killed so many native tribes.
Free labor we did gather from the shores of Africa.
To build this once great nation, we now call America.

This here is the land of the free and of the brave.
All who do not bow to us will end up in a grave.
Our suits of body armor and our missiles and our tanks
will protect for us our interests. Oh yes, we are the skanks!

If you see that we are coming, you’d better run and hide.
There is naught that you can do as many have thus tried.
We torture and we kill, it’s nothing new to us.
We’d even throw our mother underneath a greyhound bus.

Once upon a time, a spy was in our midst,
we tortured him real good; his balls, yes we did twist.
He’s locked up in a cell, confined both day and night.
He committed quite the crime. He did what he thought right!

There’ll always be a soldier to get our bidding done.
So many without conscience, we’ll always find someone.
The training here starts early. At age three, they know the drill.
By the time they come to us, they’re all ready for the kill.
